We have had changes in the team Dare and we would like to announce that Akseli Huhtanen will start as a new CEO effective immediately and our previous CEO Ella will be moving on to new challenges ahead of her. There will also be some other role changes in the team as Akseli assumes the role of CEO after being in charge of the program and event production.
“Akseli has been part of the team from our very beginning in April 2016. He knows his way around Dare to Learn better than more or less anyone!” comments Heikki Koponen, the chair of the board of Sivistyskiihdyttämö ry, the association behind Dare to Learn.
For the past 2 years, Akseli has been working as the Head of Program. Even though the change is big, he is looking forward to new challenges.
“I’m looking forward to this year, the new role and what it will bring. We have an excellent team and we will make Dare to Learn even better than last year”, Akseli comments.
Besides the new CEO, we also have new members in the team. Jasmin Seppälä will start as Head of Community, Veera Hakaste will take care of production and experience and Susanna Jokimies will make a comeback to the team and will take over Akseli’s previous role as a Head of Program.
